Card Creating Tuesday - Get Well Card

Today is Tuesday, and that can only mean one thing:


For this week the Theme was to create a
Get Well Card

I made my card using
Paper Doll Dress Up and
Life is a Beach.

My nephew is in the Navy and he
had to have surgery on his wrist
for bone spurs.  He is stationed
on a submarine in Hawaii!!
So this card was made for him!

The submarine was cut from Life is a Beach.
I used metallic cardstock.

The sailor was cut from Paper Doll Dress Up.
He is actually the Raggedy Andy cut!!
I used Peachy Keens Basic
Paper Dolls stamp set for the face.
I added some doodling with
a metallic gel pen.
I tore layers of paper for the water
and the sand, and inked the edges
I used glitter cardstock for the sand.
The sunset was added with chalk.
Sorry, but I do not recall which
cart the Get Well Soon is from!!

Here is a pic of my nephew.

Tyler, get well soon!!

Now, please be sure to check out
what the rest of the design team
made today over at My Cricut Craft Room

Kathy this card is fabulous. When I was in HI recently the highlight was to go on board the Blofish submarine @ Pearl Harbor. I don't know how they live on these subs! I hope your nephew has a speedy recovery. TFS, Mary M
